TOPSPIN CHARITY SUPPORTS YOUTH EDUCATION IN NYC WITH STAR-STUDDED TABLE TENNIS EVENT

 

Ninth Annual Tournament Brings Together Sports and Entertainment Stars Executives to Benefit Four Organizations for Underserved Youth

 

NEW YORK, TopSpin Charity continues to support youth education in New York City with its charity table tennis tournament on WednesdayDecember 6, 2017 from 6:30-11:30 p.m. at Metropolitan Pavilion in Manhattan.

 

This year’s event, as showcased in 2016, boasts two, elevated stadium courts, which will play host to the Celebrity Tournament – featuring professional athletes and celebrities from New York City – and the Professional Division – highlighted by professional players from USA Table Tennis. A number of retired professional basketball players as well as numerous professional teams are expected to play in the celebrity tournament. The event will also have an Open Division in which participants can now register. Winners of each Division will receive a JBL Charge 3.

 

TopSpin will donate all proceeds secured in 2017 to four non-profit organizations and two of TopSpin’s newly developed programs aimed at increasing the educational opportunities for underserved youth:

 

• Oliver Scholars: Prepares high-achieving Black and Latino students from underserved NYC communities for success at top independent schools and prestigious colleges

• A Better Chance – FM: A Better Chance recruits academically talented students of color from disadvantaged school districts and places them in an outstanding public school in Fayetteville-Manlius.

• Horizons – BFS (Brooklyn Friends School): Horizons at Brooklyn Friends School is an academic enrichment program designed to serve kindergarten through eighth grade children from low-income families living in downtown Brooklyn.

• Harlem Academy: A private school serving gifted children in grades 1-8 from underserved communities

• TopSpin Hoops Academy (THA): A 5-day overnight basketball camp focused on conflict resolution and community service

• TopSpin, Harlem Lacrosse & Camp Cedar: A week long summer camp experience at Camp Cedar in Maine for roughly 75 kids from the Harlem Lacrosse program.

 

"We’re pleased TopSpin’s impact to underserved youth in New York City has continued to grow,” said Peter Farnsworth, Founder of TopSpin Charity. “Every child – regardless as to the zip code into which they’re born – deserves access to a well-rounded, quality education. TopSpin is a vehicle for the sports and entertainment industry to help do something about it.”

 

The charity event will bring 14 of New York’s top restaurants together, offering an unprecedented catering variety. The event will have a Coca-Cola Lounge, a dynamic cocktail program led by Effen Vodka and other Beam Suntory spirits. Kalkutta, named in homage to her infancy spent in an Indian orphanage, is an Artist, DJ, and Songwriter / Producer (signed to Sony ATV) and will be providing the sounds for TopSpin 2017. Additional event elements include an experience by FoxTales, and a silent auction in partnership with Grandstand Sports & Memorabilia.

 

Sponsors of TopSpin include sports leagues media entities and premium brands, including:  AEG, American Express, Anheuser-Busch, Atlanta Dream, Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, CAA, Coca-Cola, Cupcake Vineyards, Discovery Communications, EFFEN, Endeavor, EverFi, Excel Sports Management, FoxTales, Getty Images, Harman International, Legends, Madison Square Garden, Major League Soccer, Matt Bishop Agency, MLBAM, NBA Cares, New Era, NFL, NHL, New York Mets, Oak View Group, Octagon, PGA Tour, Ticketmaster, Turner Sports, Wasserman, Wheels Up and WWE.
